We’re still crossing our fingers for a 2017 localisation of Monster Hunter Stories to the West, but while we wait there’s plenty to see from the marketing for its October release in Japan. During Tokyo Game Show, Capcom has been showing the game off and announcing new crossover content.
First of all, below is a new extended trailer showing off the game in general, which is full of drama as expected.
Beyond that three new cross-overs have been announced. First up is one for Chibi Maruko-chan, which is a hugely popular Shōjo manga series in the country; it perhaps demonstrates how this title is aiming to broaden the potential audience for the Monster Hunter series.
Next up is Puzzle & Dragons, which is no surprise as that’s an IP that’s hugely popular (particularly in Japan) on smart devices and also 3DS.
Finally, there’s a collaboration with The Kumamoto Project, which is a charitable organisation.
Plenty of Monster Hunter Stories footage there – let us know what you think, and be sure to check out our first impressions of the game from some demo time at Tokyo Game Show.
